Ms Credlin said there are problems within the administration which are not being addressed.

“It’s been like this for well over 14 months and the Government keeps saying its someone else’s fault, there’s a reason why they have bad poll results,” she told Radio 2GB.

“They can’t keep saying there’s nothing wrong with the administration in Canberra.

“They need to acknowledge they’re getting the messages wrong and people aren’t happy.”

When Mr Turnbull ousted Mr Abbott as Prime Minister he used a benchmark of 30 poll losses to push for the departure of Mr Abbott.
